Went here for a snorkeling tour. Extremely disappointed in the amount of fish as there were not that many. Also the tour guide was a little too harsh of those of us that are "experienced snorklers" wanting you to be close to him. A little annoying for me.

Akumal...where the Turtles are. Shallow sea grass bed beach. Occasional Turtles to see snorkelling.

Took the overpriced ($17RT) ferry to Isla Mujeres from Playa Tortugas and it was easy to get to and short trip from my hotel on the strip via a bus. I did not stay long and seems incredibly touristy but if you are looking for something to do in Cancun or just an interested people watching adventure this might be the place for you.
